  • A warm-weather winter getaway needs to be booked stat, solely based on Loeffler Randall’s Resort collection that was just released. I’m drooling over these ankle tie sandals, these snakeskin scalloped flats, these peep-toe booties and these snakeskin & leopard heels!
  • For anyone who loves documentaries (I’m a bit of a nerd), I highly recommend checking out the two below (accompanied by a nice glass of wine!):
    • SOMM takes you on the adventure of four men vying to pass the highest level of sommelier, The Master Sommelier Exam, an immensely intimidating test with one of the lowest pass rates in the world. Aside from the a few drawn out scenes and the lack of female candidates (?!), overall I found it really informational & interesting!
    • city.ballet, produced and narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, is an online series documenting the trials and tribulations behind the scenes of what it takes to ascend from a backup dancer in the Corps de Ballet, to a principal dancer in the New York City Ballet  – the “ultimate stage”. The first season was amazing, and the second season released this week is just as good!
  • Cold temps completely transforms my normal-to-oily skin into a dry-itchy mess. Lightweight moisturizers need to swapped out for more intense versions, and coconut oil has been my favorite for quite some time now. However, there are days when I just don’t have time to let it soak in, and really don’t want to ruin my clothes and/or sheets, so I’m going to give this diy lotion bar a shot this weekend! Have any of you ever tried anything similar? You can check out more of my cold weather skin care essentials here.
  • Speaking of cold weather, I found the perfect wool fedora!
  • Have you checked out Kate Spade’s collaboration with Gap Kids yet?! It takes adorable to a new level!!!

  1. Loved the info about the ballet. Will definitely check it out. Also looked at the recipe for the body lotion and am going to try it. I buy organic coconut oil in B J’S and use it every day. Spoke to Aunt Carol and mom and we decided you should make the bars for Christmas gifts. Enjoy your weekend. Love Aunt b
